BAE Systems will provide laser warning sensor sets to protect U.S. military aircraft under a $17.7 million contract by Alliant Techsystems, of Arlington, Va.

The contract provides components for the AAR-47 Missile Approach Warning System, which provides critical warning systems for hostile threats. Alliant Techsystems provides integration and delivery of the AAR-47 system to the military.

The sole-source award to BAE's Austin, Texas, facility is for the Naval Air Systems Command's production and spares requirements. The circuit card assemblies are built in Wayne, N.J., and Austin, Texas. Deliveries will begin in July 2011 and run through November 2012.
